We have had a lot of threads on Audacity but I did not find a reference to plugins. I found a plugin to reduce bass a little while back and just found another that allowed the amplification of the right or left track and other edits for a single track as well. Can be found here:

Amplify Track

Hopefully, this will be useful to others, and open the door for additional suggestions of Audacity plugins.

Good to know of software developers who allow contributions that improve the usefulness and value of their creations.

And heaps of appreciation to those who share their technical skills in ways that enable non-techies like me.

Like a number of threads, I think we would find personal recommendations, for plugins people have tried and found useful, worth hearing about.
There is one "Nyquist" plugin that will find silences in something such as a recording of an LP. It can be useful for splitting a recording into tracks.
Quack!

There is already an amplify "effect" which applies equally to both channels of a stereo track. Also if you want to amplify L and R by different amounts you can split the stereo track into two mono tracks, and the controls at the left hand end of the tracks let you vary the level and L-R pan of each component - perfect for stereo recordings which are a bit unbalanced or where your L and R channels are really two instruments/voices and you need to blend them in to a narrower stereo image.

If I want to raise the level of a whole track without the odd peak getting distorted by overloading, I often use the "Fast lookahead limiter" plugin instead of "amplification". That works by applying gain (my main purpose) and then limiting peaks to a level you can set. -0.5dB or -1dB peaks are good if you want loud without anything overshooting.

Thanks for the link to that list of plugins, I noticed there's a peak finder there - I wish I'd known that a little while ago. It's going to be useful...
